I was given a carton of the Hazelnut Drink and the Almond Milk to take home, and today I decided to make some ice cream/frozen dessert using the Hazelnut variety. I've got an ice cream machine which makes life easier but if you don't you can freeze in a large container and stir around every 30 minutes or so to break up the ice crystals and prevent it freezing into a lump.
Dairy Free Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream
4 tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 tbsp (approx) boiling water
4 tbsp Honey
500ml Alpro Hazelnut Drink
- Beat the cocoa powder with the boiling water to make a paste, stir in the honey and allow to cool
- Stir the Hazelnut drink into the cocoa mix, a little at a time until all combined
- Churn in an ice cream maker until desired consistency is reached
- Place in a freezable container in the freezer until firmed up
This dessert doesn't freeze completely solid and is quite 'icy' due to the water content in the Hazelnut milk, however it passed the test with my 9 & 11 year old taste testers so it must be good.
